Ingredient supplier Tate & Lyle PLC is showcasing at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing, Dubai, UAE, October, 29 – 31, its latest range of solutions designed to help manufacturers in the Middle East and beyond meet the latest consumer food and drink trends.
The company is preparing a new range of applications and demonstrations on how different ingredients can be combined to create bespoke solutions for sugar or calorie reduction, specific texture profiles or enriching products with fiber or protein while reducing costs.
Dominique Floch, regional sales and technical director for Middle East & Africa at Tate & Lyle said that healthy living is a key priority among consumers and they see a demand for healthier ingredients growing steadily. Among them, high protein, sugar reduction and fiber enrichment solutions are higher on the agenda for many manufacturers than ever before. “In response to this, we have developed a new range of applications to help our customers tap into those trends. (…) We are able to provide tailored solutions for manufacturers that allow them to create food and beverages that really meet the needs of consumers in the region,” Floch says.
Protein Boost, Fiber-enriched and Sugar Replacement
New applications are being developed in response to the needs of increasingly fitness-focused consumers, who are looking for healthy products with nutritional benefits, such as additional protein, but also reduced fats and sugar.
Visitors of Gulfood will be able to taste a range of products that showcase cost-effective calorie reduction and fiber enrichment solutions, including juice drinks and baked goods.
The samples include reduced-sugar biscuits enriched with PROMITOR® Soluble Fiber, which delivers texture and taste but with 30% less sugar, while also delivering a boost in fiber content.
On the other hand, Tate & Lyle and Sweet Green Fields’ partnership in innovative stevia ingredients and solutions will exhibit the ways food and beverage manufacturers can reduce sugar levels in a range of products using the OPTIMIZER Stevia™ range.
The Tate & Lyle product line up will also feature its latest innovation in creating sugar reduction solutions including a range of beverages, condiments and cake bars, all with reduced-sugar content.
